wants to have government investing for us. he wants to hire more government workers. he wants to raise taxes, as the vice-president biden blurted out today, they want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars, or more like $2 trillion by our calculation. he has laid out the same policies he has been following the last four years. i don't think that sells very well when people hear that. he also didn't have the chance to continue to misrepresent my views. i got the chance to present my own perspectives. and i think that helped me. >> sean: do you think to some extent that the obama campaign has overreached by calling you a tax cheat and attacking bain capital and even suggesting that you were responsible for the death of this man's wife, et cetera, et cetera, they spent millions and millions of dollars advancing a narrative against you, you know, the president himself saying that your plan is for dirty air and dirty water and you want kids with autism and the elderly to fend for themselves. to some extent do you think that by over reaching and when people saw you side by side that that partl
candidate obama veers off from his prepared remarks and accuses the u.s. government of short-changing hurricane katrina victims in new orleans. >> what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? where's your stafford act mony? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> greta: and now, former vice-presidential candidate, sarah palin, posting her response on facebook to the video. many of you have seen theuent 07 speech in which then senator obama suggested that because of racism, the federal government didn't waive the stafford act to assist new orleans after katrina. 10 days before senator obama gave this speech, the federal government did in fact waive the stafford act for new orleans. and to add insult to injury, barack obama was one of 14 senators who voted against the bill that, included the provision to give supplemental emergency assistance to new orleans of he was being dishonest and divisive, which we have seen far too often from him in the last four year
explained the delay, in part. >> we were working with the government of libya to obtain permission for the f.b.i. team and the d.o.d. support team to travel there. we did seek overflight permission and landing of the aircraft and worked to get the appropriate visas so we have been working through all of this. >> the state department also acknowledged today that requests from officials to keep at the ready a state department airplane in the country wereryjected saying the plane was returned to iraq when the commercial flights in libya resumed. trace? >>trace: thank you, james, from washington, dc. now over to the senior fellow from the brookings institution which describes itself as a nonpartisan public and foreign policy think tank. i want to start off where james left off with the f.b.i. getting into benghazi. now we are hearing that is the only reason they were three weeks late because they were waiting for the libyan government to give them permission. do you buy that? >>guest: i don't know. i think there have been some mistakes made along the way in how we have talked about this, maybe i
they're telling a far different story. the government's household survey says that 873,000 people entered the work force. but the employer survey found 114,000 new jobs created, 10,000 of those in government. so, the difference, about 760,000 are apparently not full-time stable jobs, what's known as the real unemployment mark, the unemployed and those too discouraged to look for work remains unchanged at 14.7%. white house correspondent wendell goler begins our coverage of the report and the spin. >> two days after a disappointing debate with mitt romney, president obama looked on the bright side of a merely modest jobs report for september. >> this morning, we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. >> in his 15th stop in virginia this year and later his 14th trip to battle ground ohio, mr. obama painted a picture of an economy that may not be growing as fast as we like, but is at least going in the right direction. >> today's news should give us some encouragement. it shouldn't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down t

this number came from but you look at it and we added 600,000 jobs in the government sector in august and september which is the largest number we have had since the study has been done, 600,000 jobs. in september, household employment added 780,000 jobs. that's the highest since 1983. i have been reviewing bigs all week, some dozen businesses. no one is stronger than they were in the third quarter than in the 2nd quarter. we have been told there are needed 150,000 to 200,000 to stay even. the last two months we have gone from 83 to 81, and now we are changing the household number assumptions. i don't know what the right number is, but i will tell you these numbers don't spell right when you think about where the economy is right now. >> what do you think happened? >> i honestly don't know. maybe we got the wrong measurement. maybe we should have been talking about 83 and 85 and 86 and maybe we should have 150,000 to hold even as a benchmark but every economist this morning predicted roughly 90 to 20 -- 120,000 and 8.3 unemployment. >> the lowest number of unemployment numbers of any
